The Alabama Supreme Court ruled Friday that ousted Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore does not have to pay more than half a million dollars in costs and attorneys' fees, stemming from his legal fight to display a Ten Commandments monument in the rotunda of the state's judicial building.
The court issued the ruling in a lawsuit filed by 11 taxpayers, seeking to make Moore pay the state's bill for court costs and attorneys' fees for the two-year battle.
The state had settled the plaintiffs' claims by agreeing to pay more than $549,000.
